Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Explore hidden gems such as Hietaranta Beach and Spas & Wellness. Visiting Arboretum Mustila and Ekenas Archipelago National Park will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Haapasaari Island (in Kotka) and Nuuksio National Park (Nuuksion Kansallispuisto) (in Southern Finland). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, take a stroll through Katajanokka, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.

For ratings, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Helsinki trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 17°C, and evening lows to 5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
